RS2 Mayfly Emerger -  Sure, this odd little pattern doesn’t look like much, but it’s indispensable during common small mayfly and midge hatches. Blue wing olives, especially, emerge from spring through fall on most trout streams, and the RS-2 is the most successful emerger imitation I’ve used. It was developed in the 1970s by Colorado angler Rim Chung for the trout of the South Platte (the name stands for “Rim’s semblance No. 2”). Fish it deep or near the surface, depending on the hatch it can be fished like a nymph or trailing in the film behind a dry fly.

Hook: Standard dry fly
Body: Colored thread and dubbing to match
Wing: Krystal Flash or CDC Feather
